With the release of Quicktime 7.1
, Apple has added a nifty feature that isn't immediately apparent: Export to Apple TV
. It's notable because the result is DVD-quality 720 by 404, as well as 1280 by 720 videos. That's 720p at 24 frames per second. Speculation is rampant that this points to HD movies in the iTunes store.
For now, movies converted at the above rate will play in iTunes but won't transfer to an iPod. Keep you eye on the movies section of iTunes...
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
